***COMPLAINT: Waste Management Call Center Placing Customers on Long Holds***
 
For those residents frustrated with the excessively long wait times when calling Waste Management for service issues, we share your concerns. Village staff has contacted Waste Management repeatedly about this problem and have a suggestion. If you encounter a long wait time on the phone, try contacting them through their website instead using the email function with your complete contact info and the issue or concern, rather than waiting on hold. You can access their customer service support form by scrolling to the bottom of the Waste Management website and click on “Customer Support”, then “Email and FAQ”, and then “Other” to get to the support form where you can enter your contact information; or use this link: https://www.wm.com/us/en/support/customer-support/contact-us-form

They have indicated they will get back to you via email or phone or note your concern and address it accordingly.
 
In the meantime, Waste Management has informed us that they are working diligently toward a better end result for the Village and the residents by migrating the calls to their second call center location in Germantown. In addition, they are graduating additional Customer Service Representatives to the phones in several weeks to reduce wait times.
 
If you continue to have problems with their call center, please contact the Village at 262-662-2039 and we can forward your concern on directly to the General Manager. We will continue to push Waste Management towards a better customer service experience with their call center. We appreciate your patience as they make these improvements.
 
Thank you.

REMINDER: Plastic Bags and Bagged Recyclables
As a reminder plastic bags and bagged recyclables are very problematic to the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). Plastic film is problematic in the system and cause costly equipment downtime, cause recyclables to be not recycled properly, and are not marketable due to how dirty they become in the collection and sorting process. The best place for plastic bags is to be returned to retail outlets for safe recycling.
